Health impacts of air pollution in Canada : an estimate of premature mortalities.: H144-51/2017E-PDF

"The approach for quantitatively estimating the population health impacts of air pollution is well recognized by health science organizations internationally. The objective of this analysis is to update and enhance an earlier Health Canada publication, based on recent scientific advancements. Compared with previous estimates, the new scientific information provides more specific analysis of cause of death associated with exposure to air pollution. In addition, updated air pollution data are also available for all of Canada, and the new estimates apply to the entire Canadian population instead of being limited to the larger urban centres. The analysis presented here makes use of these advances to provide an update of previous efforts by Health Canada to quantify air pollution health impacts”--Summary, p. 4.
